15 Best History Audiobooks You Never Heard in School

While history is by definition the study of the past, no subject tells us more about the present, or is as exciting to follow in contemporary times. Some authors cover a massive scope, zoom in to tiny details, focus on individuals or groups, or speculate on the significance of items, materials, and inventions. Unlike your history class at school, these selections aren’t about memorising names and dates — instead, they explore unsolved mysteries, ask fascinating questions, and tackle concepts to ponder long after the final credits. Read on for 15 of the best Audible titles all about history.
